Special 35mm Edition (1958) Paul Hubschmid, Madeleine Fischer, Fiorella Mari, Peter Meersman, Ivo Garrani, Dario Michaelis. Most of the video copies around of this title are pretty awful, so it’s amazing how much better this Euro-science fiction thriller is when you’ve got decent picture quality. The movie starts off with a rocket preparing to lift off for the moon. But when the blast off goes awry, the rocket (which contains oodles of atomic matter) smashes into an asteroid, which in turn shatters into an avalanche of deadly rocks and space debris—now on a collision course with Earth! Earth’s scientists must now stop this deadly mass before it’s too late.
